ABOUT THE SHOW
Topics Include is an unapologetically trans podcast that seeks to create a space for trans people to gather through pro-Black, sex positive, and healing-informed conversations that are educational by accident and liberational by choice. It is hosted by Ianne Fields Stewart, L Morgan Lee, Samy Nour Younes, and Maybe Burke—four trans panelists who work at the intersection of art and activism. New episodes are recorded weekly and cover a broad range of queer topics. Be sure to check them out wherever you download your podcasts, and don’t forget: no matter what they’re talking about the most important topic to include is y-o-u!
L Morgan, Maybe, and Samy are joined by mother Pooya Mohseni to talk about Marsha P. Johnson’s impact on trans history, and explore the question: why are queer people so mean to each other? They also answer listener letters about dating apps, “boring” boyfriends, and gofundme campaigns… oh my!
CONTENT WARNING: this episode does touch on depression, self-harm, and suicide.
Ianne and Samy get together for a Harry Potter-themed check in, and a deep dive into what self-care means for them.
Samy brings you an update on what everyone is doing, and a special announcement about the future of the podcast.
Maybe, Ianne, and Samy are back from having done a week-long workshop, and they describe the experience of working on a production with a mostly-trans cast. Then we dive into the subject of aging as trans people, and ask each other, “what kind of trans elder are you going to be?”
CONTENT WARNING: This episode discusses instances of transphobia, violence, suicide, and death. Listener discretion is advised.
